Not sure if this is right place to ask as it is not directly related to programming in Raspberry Pi but anyway.. I want to setup automated garden for my allotment. There is no electricity, no internet, middle of nowhere:
Tools: solar panels, battery, raspberry Pi zero + WittyPi
Plan: start raspberry pi every 1h, check temp, humidity, light, take a photo, connect to internet and upload to website, shut itself down.
Everything is fine, except my only idea for access point is an old mobile phone (smartphone Samsung s7) setup as a Hotspot. It's not ideal as it does require lot of juice to power this up which means I would most likely have to add few more solar panels. I live in Scotland, sun here is like a gold :) Just wanted to pickup your brains to check if any of you will have better idea how to deliver internet without using hell lot of energy.
Thanks for any replies.
